Based on real events, The Cookie Loved ‘Round the World tells the tale of how, in the midst of the Great Depression, the chocolate chip cookie was created by Ruth Wakefield, the owner of the Toll House Restaurant in Whitman. The story follows the famous chocolate chip cookie from its invention to its designation as the Official State Cookie by the Massachusetts State Legislature in 1996 through Whitman’s Cookie Drop on New Year’s Eve in 2013.
